Wow! It has been forever since I posted. It's not that I haven't been in my craftroom, I just haven't been taking pictures and blogging. Over the Thanksgiving break I made 50 little treat bags for all the teachers at my preschool. I filled them with the little hand sanitizers from Bath and Body. I also made about 50 Christmas cards for our family and friends, but didn't take a picture of one!
In December I joined the Feline Playful blog. A group of dedicated ladies update and post the challenges and winners everyday of a huge list of blogs. Go check it out. You can find me there doing the Thursday Winners post.
2012 was a pretty normal year for our family. The girls are in 9th and 5th grades and doing well. But in November, it went downhill. DH was laid off. Right before Christmas is not when you want to be looking for a job. Absolutely no one is hiring or even in the office to talk to. So fingers crossed that things will start moving for him in his job search. What I hate the most is the uncertainty. Will we have to move to another state and start over in our schools and church? Will we find a job here, but for much less and have to downsize? Will the job search take too long and we deplete our savings? Ugh! This is what keeps me up at night.
So, I have decided that I need to get my craft on and keep my mind off of what I can't control. In 2013, I will enter challenges again. I will try out for a design team. I will participate in a blog hop. I will scrapbook and blog about it. I will get my craft on!
